Cerakote Kimber Covert

Just picked up my Covert from the shop, I just had the frame painted and changed the grips. This will be one of my carry guns so I don't care if its perfect. I think this looks much better.

That turned out great Zoom, love the grips for sure. I think the frame on my RCP will be a little more on the grey color side where yours Covert is more on the green side. Nice vision you had for it!

Very nice. OD Green on the frame and Armor Black on the slide is what I did too. A popular two tone.

As tough as Cerakote is, it will wear faster then you might imagine. Cheapo cloth (Uncle Mike) holsters will wear the least on the finish vs. a classic leather.

Looks really great Les, it looks like you've got a set of Kimber Tactical grips, all you're missing is a magwell.

Good eye We took them off a tactical at the gun shop and they let me swap. I think I will put a maxwell on it next.

I am sure you are correct on the wear showing. I am ok with that, I will use this as one of my EDC. so it will get more marks. The original finish wore on the frame very fast also.
